Open Source Summit China 2019 - The real costs of Open Source Sustainability
- Publication date
In 2016 Nadia Eghbal released "Roads and Bridges: The Unseen Labor Behind Our Digital Infrastructure," which shines a light on how few people maintain the software that underpins a large amount of the internet and the services that run on it.
The software world has rallied around Open Source Sustainability. Going with what they know, folks mostly focus on paying FOSS developers. Funding drives were funded. Foundations were founded. Startups started up. Venture capitalists ventured that capital.
Money isn't the only part of sustainable FOSS projects. Sustainability is a multi-faceted concept that can't work if people focus on only one of its many elements.
This talk will:
- Review literature around the concept of sustainability
- Propose a definition that more accurately details what "sustainable" means to FOSS
- Provide tips for starting with your FOSS sustainability efforts
